Matar ki sabzi recipe (Green peas sabzi recipe), How to make matar sabzi

When it comes to the curry or sabzi, I end up using matar combined with other vegetables like aloo matar, mushroom matar, methi matar malai etc.

But many times, I am out of vegetables. So that time I make this matar ki sabzi. Because I always have the bag of frozen peas in freezer.

Other than peas, tomatoes are used here. This makes slight gravy or I would say it makes semi-dry sabzi.

At the end yogurt is added which adds slight tang. This flavor blends well with the sweetness of peas.

There is no onion no garlic added in the recipe. If making this dish Jain, please skip ginger.
